Vorshlag wheel specs.

Is there any info on the wheel specs Vorshlag used on the wide body frs shop car? I know they went with 18x11 wheels with 315 30 tires on the front and 19x12 wheels with 335 tires on the rear super concave F14s. I just need the offset as it wasn't mentioned. I was going to order a set from Vorshlag but they no longer sell wheels, and ask not to be contacted with wheel questions. Any help would be appreciated. 😊

This set of 18x11s was ordered in the exact same spec as the set we ran in 2019, so we know they will fit. But I had Brad put these on in March of 2021, just to make sure they were made to the spec we sent. These took nearly eleven months to arrive, which is one reason why we no longer sell wheels from this group - nobody can wait that long for custom wheels.

so it sounds like 18x11 8.25" backspacing

Did you see where they said the backspacing on the fronts were 8.25" on the 18x11s ? I was only able to locate the backspacing on the rear. I will look more!

The numbers they throw around when they were trying to get the 12" wide wheel on the front don't make it easy to figure it out. They stated they used a 38mm spacer and it had 19mm poke but cleared the suspension. Subtract the 38mm reduce the backspacing and you end up with more further out past the flare. I don't think they provide enough precise info to get it right on the money, but they were not trying to give us the info. They were trying to fit what they needed, and write it up as they went. Looks like I will need to buy the tool, and some tires to measure it precisely.

Thanks for trying to help me find the info!

Unfortunately most Bunny Boyz are show. Their cars look great but wouldn't function well on a road course. Again most, not all. I was able to email Vorshlag and they provided me with the information I was in need of. Going to check out the link you provided as well and check out the setups.

I was going to recommend that you contact them directly. Sometimes they can be a bit slow to respond (very busy shop) but usually not too bad and tend to be very helpful.

Now that you have the info, why don't you post it for other people looking in the future?

I need to make sure they don't mind me sharing the info they spent time and money working the fitment up. I will update as soon as I hear back.

Vorshlag said Its ok to post the specs 18"x11" et33 running 315 30 18s track tested successfully. Rear 18"x12" 8.26"
backspacing 335 tires mounted. Not tested on a track yet. Anyone running those specs? Thoughts, opinions?
